Senate Inquiry into CASA.

Inquiry into the Administration of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and related matters


Terms of Reference
On 29 May 2008, the Senate Standing Committee on Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport resolved, under Standing Order 25(2)(b), to conduct a formal inquiry into the administration of the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and related matters. The proposed reporting date is 9 July 2008.

Noting the Government's announced intention to release a National Aviation Policy Green Paper in the latter half of 2008 and the importance of maintaining Australia's strong aviation safety record, the committee will conduct an inquiry into the administration of CASA and related matters:

to assess the effectiveness of administrative reforms undertaken by CASA's management since 2003;
  • to examine the effectiveness of CASA's governance structure; and
  • to consider ways to strengthen CASA's relations with industry and ensure CASA meets community expectations of a firm safety regulator.
The committee invites written submissions, which should be lodged by Monday, 30 June 2008, to:

The Secretary
Senate Standing Committee on Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport
PO Box 6100
Parliament House
CANBERRA ACT 2600
This could be the most important aviation related inquiry in over 20 years!

Submissions - not questions - must be forwarded in respect to:
  • Twenty years so far to re-write the CARs and the appropriateness of what has been achieved.
  • CASA's relationship with other Authorities, ATSB and AsA and the aviation industry.
  • CASA's "administrative actions" and it's ethics as a litigant and/or participation in Court processes.

And numerous other issues over the past years which have affected and diminished CASAs capacity to efficiently and safely regulate aviation in Australia.
